- Winwyn posted on IG to respond to her bashers
Winwyn Marquez was bashed by some netizens for winning the Reina Hispanoamericana-Filipinas title instead of the Miss World Philippines 2017 crown, which was won by Laura Lehmann.
KAMI learned about Winwyn’s response to the bashers from her Instagram page.
“please do not belittle the title just because you don't know anything about it or dahil ngayon niyo lang narinig and nag ququestion bakit tayo kasali etc.
“please try do a little research and try to be open minded bago mag criticize ng sobra.
“I am so honored to be the first ever Filipina to join this pageant and i'll be ‘Miss Philippines’ in Bolivia and doon palang winner na ako.
“instead of questioning everything magtulungan nalang tayo para makita ng lahat na BUO ang supporta ng mga pinoy…”
“The Philippines and Spain have shared history, values and traditions. I am very excited and honored to be part of this prestigious pageant that celebrates Hispanic heritage. And i am also very excited to meet everyone in bolivia and know about this amazing country in november!
“My grandmother is half-spanish but unfortunately we weren't taught how to speak spanish. I may not be fluent in Spanish but I would love to learn this beautiful language, many words of which have been assimilated in Filipino.”
Winwyn also had a message for her parents, siblings and friends.
“my loved ones (mark, my siblings and my friends) who always pushed me to follow my dreams and to never give up and ofcourse to my parents you two made me who I am today..you guys kept me grounded. They dont know how much you sacrificed for us and this is one way I can say thank you sainyo. My Diploma, Teaching Certificate and now my Crown is for you mama and daddy.”
